One of the main reasons these brushes have been the talk of the town is they apply foundation/ any makeup in under a minute and blends away faster than any normal makeup brush would. I found that to be true with it's dupe as well. The shape of the handle makes it really easy to hold and the domed shape helps with quick application. All I had to do it dot my foundation all over my face, used the brush in sweeping motions and viola, it was all blended in seconds. I am quite impressed with this dupe and I think it worked so well for me. I also wiped the brush off on a wet wipe after applying my makeup, and hardly anything came off on the tissue which proves that it doesn't soak up your foundation(as sponges and beauty blenders can do)
One thing I will say about this is that I did expect the brush to be a lot bigger from the picture but what I got looks identical to the "blush brush" from the Artis brush set and not the foundation. However, I found this smaller size worked perfectly for my face and the smaller size actually helped reach corners and blend evenly(under the eyes, around the nose). You can definitely find the listing for the bigger sized ones or the whole set too if you'd like. Just read the descriptions and sizes well instead of relying on the pictures!
Will you be switching out your normal makeup brushes for oval ones?
